Man Who Made Bomb Threat At AEP Building Hospitalized

A man who walked into the lobby of the American Electric Power building in downtown Columbus building and threatened to blow it up last year has been committed to a state psychiatric hospital.

44-year-old Munir Saleh was found not guilty by reason of insanity earlier this month. Two psychologists determined he didn't understand his actions last May. Prosecutors say he walked into the lobby with a package and told security officers he intended to blow up the building and shoot any responding police officers.
